You’re Welcome!

…but you didn’t thank me, right?  This is true. 

I have discovered recently that I don’t say “You’re Welcome.”  When people thank me for something, I tend to go with  “No problem” or “Don’t worry about it.”  This becomes especially obvious when I am busy with Box Office orders at work.  Very often callers thank me after I take their order (so polite!) and I NEVER say “You’re welcome.”  It’s like I’m allergic to that phrase.

I have to believe I said it at one time.  It is the polite response, isn’t it?  So, why, when I know it is the appropriate response, do I find it so hard to make it a habit?  Any thoughts?

Is there something that you should say but you don’t?  Or even something you wish you could remove from your vocabulary???

    I think this is so funny that you noticed this. I love self-awareness. I overthink my words at work constantly, but that’s just because I work in HR. 🙂 Outside of work I abbreviate everything. The other night I even shortened that word into “abbreves”, which makes no sense at all.
